- PSA: Duffbags New Stock!!!
@prancinghorse the bags have been designed to take what you would need from a typical ride : shoes, helmet, hydration pack, shorts, shirt, base layer, outer shell plus some basic body armour. You probably don’t need more than one bag unless you need to seperate out your wet and dry kitPosted 5 years agojambalayaSubscriber
@honourablegeorge – top responce !
I have ordered two, one for me and one for a mate. I bought a Monsterbag and these were sold out at the time.
@IHN I like the convenience, the flap to stand on, ability to close it up and keep most of the smell in !
A far as I know those IKEA shopping bags are not waterproof, wet muddy gear will leak sh1t into my car. I have seen mates use the plastic “basket type” but they are not sealable nor have the stand on flap. In the past I’ve used the plastic storage boxes and still do for lubes, brush etcPosted 5 years ago
how waterproof are these bags?
@ prancinghorse they are not a drybag, if you fill them with water they will eventually leak out of the seams but in our experience they are more than capable of containing the moisture in a typical wet mountain bike kit or a wetsuit that has been reasonably wrung out.Posted 5 years agoKryton57Subscriber

Mine don’t, the Duff bags aren’t waterproof either it says so on the website. And the Ikea bags are free. Convienient for me as IKEA is 10 mins down the road and on the way to the outlaws.
Not knocking the idea though. Does anyone know, does the footflap fold “in”, or does the residue of the shoes (water mud etc) run off outside the bag when you fold it up?Posted 5 years ago
@Kryton57 I used to use Ikea bags until I decided to make something better 😀 I originally made a couple for my own use, people saw them and it just grew from there
The fold out changing mat is designed to fold back into the bag after use. If you use the changing mat as it is intended i.e. step out of wet shoes and socks and onto the changing mat, dry feet and put on dry socks and shoes it should not get too muddy unless you are standing in a puddle of course 😉Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’ve got 2, they’re brilliant. One for dirty kit on trips, the other takes all the camping kit (inflating mat, sleeping bag, trangia, some food, blanket, etc etc) so I can jump out the car, with just the duffbag and the pop up tent in a nearby field, then in the morning reverse the whole procedure before Mr Farmer is even awake and repeat all week.Posted 5 years agoMTB RobMember
the only draw back I see is you have to put the whole bag down to use the changing mat, so making the bottom of the whole bag dirty/wet if not in a hard pack carpark.Posted 5 years ago
granted it prob far cleaner than load of dirty kit all over the place.
Maybe have the mat detachable would be great.

5 seconds and a pair of scissors would make the mat detachable 😀
Seriously, the material for the outer shell is a nylon type material with a special coating, which is non absorbent, you could put it on the mud and unless you jumped up and down on it or placed it in a puddle it would not pick up a lot of of mud or moisture.Posted 5 years ago
@Duffman, any update on when these bags will land?
The bags are due into Felixstowe on Wednesday of next week, after customs clearance and shipping we should be able to pack and despatch from early the following week. We do have quite a large pre-order list to clear though but will get through it as soon as possible.Posted 5 years ago
Quick update: the bags are now in stock, we are packing this weekend to work through the now very, very long list of pre-orders (still riding Sunday though 😉 ). We aim to work through the list oldest first and get everything despatched by early next week.
We won’t be able to update the price on the website until Monday now so you still have the chance to take advantage of the pre-order offer this weekend.
Please be gentle with us 🙂Posted 5 years ago
OK,we have all the packing done for the pre-orders and they are now with the post office so you should start receiving bags in the next few days.We are still waiting on a new delivery of phone pouches so orders for multiple items may be a little bit longer while we wait for stock to arrive to complete orders, you can email me via the duffbag site if you want part shipment.
We are updating our blog with regular updates on progress here duffbag despatch updatePosted 5 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
Like them, and will probably treat
myselfmy car to one(Regular Duffbag). One question though, if I decide to use it as regular luggage rather than just a car saver, can it be locked? My dad’s ancient Navy kitbag has a neat D-clamp you could feed through the holes and stick a padlock on? Have you tried anything like that?
Edit: Just had a google, seems like they still exist.
Any idea if it’ll fit?Posted 5 years ago
@midlifecrashes you don’t need to use one of those D links although they do look nice in an old fashioned way 🙂 Those clamps date back to WW1 and were used to stop pilfering when troops were being moved between locations, simple and effective and still in use today.
You can secure the duffbag using an ordinary padlock. I will take some pictures showing you how later when I have 5 mins.Posted 5 years ago
@Midlifecrashes – No problem, thanks for your order it has been shipped.
We are now right up to date with despatching orders, any that we are holding as there are multiple items to ship have been notified via email.
Anyone that has not had a delivery or a notification of despatch or status update please let me know via the duffbag site and I will look at it for you.
May get a ride in this weekend 🙂Posted 5 years ago
